Recent updates: In June 2019 I returned to HeroInMe bike ride fundraiser for those battling addiction where I played the guitar and sang songs during the opening proceedings and in one of the pitstops during the bike ride in Naperville, Illinois. This summer I am continuing to work on new music and after a hectic several months of moving from one address to another, I'm booking shows for the fall and winter. If you host house concerts, showcases, songwriters in the round, or are looking for a performing songwriter for reasons only known to the blessed few who seek us out, please contact me, I'd love to hear from you.

...Plus, for something completely different, check out my electronic album, Bullet Tone Bored, an in-progress work made with eurorack modular synthesizers and other bleep and bloop tools.

But my heart is firmly rooted in songwriting...Have no fear, a new folk-spirited folk style album of all new songs is coming in 2019. Until then, be sure to get the the latest folk rock  album "Fire and Steam" on BandCamp, full digital and Limited Run CD out now! Order Fire and Steam today!

A few words people have said about Fire and Steam:

"Tree hugger, are ya? I can dig it." - Chuck Prophet

"The arrangements are really well done. Very reminiscent of early 70's Stones. Your voice shines. You really have found it. The songwriting has taken a solid move forward. The strength of your topical writing is well balanced with universal metaphor. These songs should outlive the times we are in and remain relevant in future times." - Charlie Mosbrook

Thanks for the recent spins of the new album by these radio shows: 

103.1 FM Left of Center, ValpoRadio,
88.7 FM Razor and Di Show,

Thanks for coming by the site! Please contact me with any questions, I'd be glad to help. Coming up in 2018 I'm looking forward to returning to the Folk Alliance Region Midwest conference (FARM) in Grand Rapids, and finally after taking a one year hiatus I'll be back to Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters in November. Sing out!
